The Potholder Deluxe Kit is wonderful! I think every one of my
five children has made a potholder for me or another lucky family
member over time, but many of them have been on the small side
and some have been made of cheap nylon loops. That is not what
you will find with the ones made from the Potholder Deluxe Kit
from Harrisville Designs. These loops are 100% cotton, thick, and
brightly colored. This kit makes potholders worth using in the
kitchen all the time.
The kit comes with one 7" x 7" metal potholder loom, a huge assortment
of the cotton loops (enough to make at least six potholders), a
plastic finishing hook, a metal weaving hook, and an illustrated
instruction and project idea insert. The loom is virtually indestructible.
We have had the plastic kind that breaks if you step on it or tug
at it too hard with beginner fingers. This loom isn't much fun
to step on, but it will not break! The metal weaving hook is well-made
and used for exactly what it sounds like it is used for--weaving
the loops in and out of each other to form the potholder.
The very best aspect to this kit is the rich deep color choices
your child will get to work with on the loom. They are deeply tinted
and don't wash out in the washing machine. These potholders are
made to look beautiful and last a long time for you in the kitchen.
I have been using my homemade potholders for months and they have
not lost their color, thickness, or workability. I don't fear that
these potholders will allow the heat to seep through like I have
with other potholder kits.
It is delightful to recommend this company and this product. For
just $26.95, you can give your child something really nice--and
receive the same back in return! I love quality products and they
gave us just that in their Potholder Deluxe Kit.
